works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carla. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really build off presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part of the world appeared word you see progress within cities? where is the u.s. -- part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. as marchers city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, -- a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of t
're going to elect a candidate who is going to govern by asking us to make choices that we haven't anticipated. and as a result, we're going to feel betrayed to some extent, even if we voted for that ndidate. >> the debates were the most watched in a long time. your field intersects politics and entertainment. do you think entertainment e.values had something to do wi this? >> well, i think sus ense was what was required down to the wire. s and that's what we got. one won one, another won another. then a coue of draws. what could be better for keepie people watching? unfortunately, the lack of an e answer to who sacrifices what is only the beginning of an endless list that, for me, is reason , to be disappointed, not just in the debates, but in the entire campaign. i want to find out about things that are important, about plutocracy taking over democracy, the widening gulf between the powerful and the powerless. wall street, global warming, on and on. at most, ty made a cameo t, appearance during the debate. and i think they were trivialized by the context. and usually, entirely
deal with every take the government through his way, whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. he knew that he could do better if government would just get out of the way it and stay out of the way. and he was right. when we get government off the backs of our job creators, small businesses have a better chance of thriving. and when small businesses thrive, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it harder for small businesses to hire. and replace it with reforms that actually the work costs and protect the doctor-patient -- lowers costs and protects the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are
is that, had there be debates in the e goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/xon election, i think we would not have had the blowout landslides that we had. what debates do is take the ec caricaturing of the challenger and give the challenger a chance to stand there and be o the challenger would like to be in front of that audience. i think for governor romney the benefit was he knocked down some of the caricature that had been built of him. and i think he reassured people, even who may vote against him, that he is not as extremtrd reckless as some of the obama advertising and statements would make him out to be. >> see, i would say that he did d not knock down the caricature. he deepened the caricature because his problem is that he will say and do anything, and there is zero accountability for it. so going into this debate, he had to prove that he was not the person that he was in the republican primaries. but simply by saying different things, doesn't make him genuinely be anything else different. he's simply recalibrating what he thinks hneeds to pander to
government and newspapers, without one or the other, he would have preferred to do with newspapers and without government. then he got elected and began to claim he was misquoted. from that, zocalo said big questions may lot of different perspectives. we have re-different people here -- three people here from different parts of the country, different backgrounds. they're all journalists. they are all people who have looked at a wide variety of topics in their work, and have among the topics they have looked at, are the media itself and specifically questions about how we keep a check on power, keep a check on government. you will hear from all three of them. i will introduce each of them as i ask the questions. immediately to my right is bernardo ruiz. his most recent film "reportero," is an incredible film if you have not seen it, it follows a reporter at an embattled mexican news weekly reporting on organized crime and corrupt officials. the film was completed and toward mexico and the human rights watch film festival and will air january 7, 2013 on pbs. he also produced two docu
government that has a $16 trillion national debt, i can't even figure out what those numbers are. we have got these young people here, like my daughter's. we do not have the right to make them pay for the rest of their lives for the fact that we could not get our spending under control. it would be no different than running up credit card bills and passing them on to our kids. we would not do that. so why do we let the government do this? it is time to end that. we have got to move to a balanced budget. it will give us more success. you know, they are talking about -- president obama is talking about a tax increase. there are two of things wrong with that. one is that i happen to know where the money goes. and secondly, raising taxes on people is not the answer in washington. i was there when we balance the budget in 1997. and we cut taxes. we did not raise taxes. to give them more money, they will spend it. it will hurt malkin -- small businesses and hurt our ability to create jobs. that is why so many small business people have been paralyzed. and then come the regulations. a small business
to see them spending more time letting people know about other things going on in the government and have been mentioned. the activities that they talk about are not necessarily all the things we should be concerned about. there's hardly any mention made about the comments joe biden made to the man who came to pick up the body of his son. i don't know that these are the kind people that we should ever presented last but no one will touch these issues. guest: if nobody touched those issues, you would not know about it. there's no shortage of information these days. these campaigns are being covered like never before and you can get a lot of the daily horse race aspect, but there's plenty of coverage of what the candidates are saying of the campaign trail and how that equates to the previous statements, policies they have enacted. i think that there is plenty of information for people. they just have to be willing to sit down and find it. host: here is "the bloomberg insider" take on colorado put out on august 27th. can you explain? guest: in our last legislative session, for the third time
that means ou can't draw an inference about what the person is going to do when the person's going to govern? one of the questions that the electorate has the opportunity to ask in debates is precisely u that question because you have two different factors holding the candidate accountable. you have the questioning moderator and you have the other candidate. and in the head to head comparisons, if a candidate is vulnerable to the charge, if the candidate has changed positions a lot on consequential matters, you're going to have questions about it and you're going to have the opposing candidate make the argument. and then electorate then has to ask, "what do i make of this? who do i think the person is? what do i think the person is actually goi to do?" but they have more evidence than gey would have in the absence of debates, and that's the value of debat . >> but look at thbaway it plays out. romney y t say, "yes, i do have a deficit plan. go look on my website. it's there. it's true." which puts the burden on the audience. i wish they would go to your website because they won't find out t
by essentially saying he would govern as president obama governs." that's what he, in effect, he said this past last debate. what about that?wn >> why would anyone believ that? yes, he said that d yes he did heit to convey the impression tt the old mitt romney from the primaries was just something he had to do to appease his tea party base.it why should you now believe that, if he gets elected, he will not be a prisoner of the eric cantors and, and the john boehners? and the right -- extreme right wing of his party that will force him to do stuff as president th he now says he's not going to do because he's in a general election campaign? aw erson who doesn't have a core, it strikes me, is er susceptible to the same kind of pressure once in office, as when he was running to appeal to his base in the first place. >> but there is an underlying tendency here that's recognizable. barack obama opposed a mandate in order to distinguish himself from hillary clinton. he has a mandate in his affordable care act. there's always some movement toward the center in governance, as well as a move toward the c
the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps politics? >> the answer is jobs, and we need to create an environment in washington, d.c., where we are working together. we are trying to create an environment of working together. it is a political year. of course she

there is a considerable confusion in the united states government and using he role of the military with covert intelligence agencies and the u.s. aid the and confused intelligee agencies with the cia with the military. >> the confusion in this instance is the white house with the president pro all the reasons why we've heard of military force could not be sent, we need permission. how was that? the cia denied request. if the president has an inclination not to use force bureaucrats can follow that. that is the direction. not from leon panetta but from the president. that is what people need to go after. >> exactly. the president hangs around in this country with people who hate the military, war and defending america up. he wts to go to jon stewart, las vegas, i get himself flattered with young people while soldiers and ambassadors are killed overseas. he is a despicable man in terms of being commander in chief. lou: thank you. more on the worsening scandal. with the "a team" next. 11 days. polls and polls. what happens if neither candidate may -- -- breaches the number of 270? the top stock.

in such a way that people can be represented in governments in a more effective fashion than they are now. president karzai has been handed a constitution where he rules the whole country. a saint would use that power. he has abused that power. i would like to look into a new constitution that would represent the people in afghanistan better than today. >> time for a new constitution in afghanistan? >> i think that we need to first of all make sure that everybody who has served there in this country, that we recognize they did everything that we asked them to do. in the and they have been asked to help train police forces. much like the national guard, they have been asked to help train them so they can take care of their own country. they need to do that. the sooner we can get out of afghanistan, the better. we need to invite these gentle back to the small communities of this district. we need to build here. we need to build infrastructure here. >> not that you are not saying something important, but i promised you earlier we would get to the farm bill. the prior farm bill has expired fo

opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s
.s. invasion and the toppling of hussein -- pusan -- a secular liberal government that was willing to cede some of its sovereign rights to a foreign power. some claim it's all different now with the islamic republic because the arab awakening, the demonstration effect will work together with sanctions to find the break the back of the islamic republic. but this ignores the fact that the islamic republic sees the arab awakening as hugely positive, hugely positive. iranian policymakers and analysts believe that any arab government, any arab government that becomes at all more representative of its populations beliefs, concerns and policy preferences will, by definition, be less enthusiastic about strategic cooperation with the united states, let alone with israel, and more open to iran's message of foreign policy independence. what policy elites here ms., is the islamic republic does not need governments to be more pro-iranian. that's not what they need. they just need these governments to be less pro-american, less pro-israel and more independent. but you often hear in washington in particular t
of of the prosperity to virginia. when they talk about less government and tax cuts, this isit looks like enormous cuts toyou can't have it both ways. they don't want to have any revenues to balance the books and what substantial cuts to government spending, that is what looks like in the commonwealth of virginia. when you make the draconian cuts thousands of lost jobs. they estimate 200,000 jobs just we may agree on the issues but we certainly disagree on how to get there. is turnout. i say that because in 2008 we had 75% turnout in virginia. three out of four voted. it is terrific. we want that type of turnout, democrats, republicans, and independents to engage in democracy. here in loudoun, it was over 75% turnout. over 70 percent -- 77% to thousand eight and barack obama received 54% of the vote. what it means to us as we are doing everything we can to get out the vote. we have five days left. we're working on it for weeks, if not months. we have tremendous resources in as well. loudoun and the rest of the commonwealth. i think we have a superior ground game, a superior and help re-elect the presid
the recession officially ended, that may spare government, but it won't stimulate the private sector than it did four years ago. >> that's what mitt romney said today at kinsler construction services in ames, iowa. you know that blissful moment waiting for the other shoe to drop? you can see david letterman scrutinizing the ties. to look for the tag to see where it's made. you know you're in that moment right now? as noted at think progress today, kinsler construction services benefitted from almost $700,000 from the stimulus that mr. romney says did no good for any companies in the private sector. you can try to make the argument that the stimulus program did not help private businesses even though the evidence shows the opposite is true. but he you're trying to make that false argument, that the stimulus program didn't help any private businesses, as you are standing at a private business that the stimulus helped, that is a particular kind of implicit lie. and the rest of us can see that lie as it is unraveled in realtime by reporting. even if you the teller of that particular lie do not seem
could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our small businessmen, who are the real job creators, know what is going to happen over the next four years. if you look at what has happened in ohio, with governor kasich, who inherited a rainy day fund that had 23 cents in it -- the state was $8 billion in debt. he was able to balance the budget, put

sector job, there were some losses in government jobs, that's why the number is 171,000. they revised upward the number of jobs for the last two months. so remember jack welch and the republicans saying, they were manipulating the numbers and attacking the professionalism of the people who do this work, well, they actually understated things a month ago. in addition, the number of people who voluntarily quit their jobs, that's an indication of how confident people are, they can find a new job, that number went up so that's a very good sign. and there is another number in the different report, the number of housing vacancies, both rental and owner occupied has declined which tells you the housing market is improving. all of the numbers are getting better. they're not as far as long as we need to be, but the direction is very clear and it is all upward. >> richard, how important is this jobs report politically? i mean, in the closing days to the election, certainly it must have a much more of an impact than, say, something maybe six or seven months ago. >> right, well, it certainly isn'
